The ASUS P6T SE works best with tripple channel memory (three sticks of RAM). The kit you linked to was dual channel (two sticks of RAM). Look for kits with 3X2GB of RAM with speeds of either 1333 or 1600 MHz, timings of CAS 8 or lower, and voltages less than 1.65V. Good luck.
 
DDR3-1600 in a 3 x 2GB kit will cost ya $246 for CAS6
DDR3-1600 in a 3 x 2GB kit will cost ya $189 for CAS7
DDR3-1600 in a 3 x 2GB kit will cost ya $129 for CAS8
DDR3-1600 in a 3 x 2GB kit will cost ya $129 for CAS9

Two sticks may work but is not advised. If you are strapped for cash, you might consider a i750 / P55 build because it uses dual channel memory, uses less expensive motherboards, is cheaper than the i920, and uses less power so you may be able to get by with a less expensive power supply. You could save about $150 with i750 build over a i920 build. For most applications including gaming, the i750 build will actually perform the as well as the i920 build:

hey, hmmmm, i've already bought the mobo and cpu, its on its way now from ebuyer, can you recommend any cheapish tripple channel, not fussed if it is 1333mhz, hopefully no more than about £100 - £110

thanks

Just buy the triple channel (3 x 2 GB) kit of the Ocz memory you listed above (or something equivalent), and it will work. Good luck.
